Domke 701-J83 J-803 Satchel User Reviews
Compact, durable, stealthy
“For travel, the J803 functions beautifully, carrying a DSLR w/ zoom + one more lens & accessories (or can easily be configured for 2 more lenses). This still leaves room for the necessities of travel: photographers of any depth do not live by cameras alone. I added a small external clip-on pouch for a cellphone. Solid construction is what I expect of Domke, & the J803 lives up to standards. Pocketing is logical & functional.” – By nytexano
“Glad I got the J-803. The ballistic nylon gave it a smart appearance that I can use for daily commuting to office & doesnt look like a camera bag. I can slot in a Nikon 70-200 VR in the single compartment (without hood) + D200 with 17-55mm (also without hood) without any problem.” – By ed
“When fully loaded with camera gear I am able to fit a Nikon d70s with is factory lens, a Nikon 70-200mm lens, an sb800, and an sb600. I can also fit two spare batteries, flashcards, and all the accessories. I have also stored a Panasonic 100B in it very nicely while filming in an impoverished area. I tend to photograph in areas where flashiness is not recommended and because of it’s low profile this bag works very well.” – By Justin
Great for travel with a small photo kit
“Great bag for travel with a small photo kit! I purchased this bag after a long, tortured search for my perfect combo travel/photo daybag. THIS IS IT! It lived with me every day of a 6-week backpacking trip through Southeast Asia and will be joining me on my next trip as well. Contents included: Nikon D7000 w/ attached lens (1 of 3 below), Nikkor 16-85 VR, Nikkor 35mm 1.8, Nikkor 50mm 1.8, polarizer, extra SD cards, card reader, lens cloth, etc, thick Lonely Planet guidebook + maps, small bottle of water, sunglasses, pens, other misc….” – By Travelin’ Matt
A great bag that fits a lot of stuff
“I bought it in the hopes that it would fit my DSLR camera, Dell Mini 9 netbook, Kindle, Palm TX, MP3 player, cell phone, a book and several magazines. It fit everything perfectly. I did buy a “large insert” from Domke for extra protection for my camera. The mini insert that comes with the bag wasn’t large enough for my Nikon D40. Turns out the large was a little too big…I might order the standard size insert. With all the interior pockets and the exterior pocket on the back it seemed that no matter what I brought with me for a day of exploring the J-803 could accommodate it perfectly.” – By Presente
